Lately, my firefox browser has been acting crazy. It will work for awhile and then decide to just not load anything. I try to load up IE as well, because I've got that also, but IT won't work either. So then I have to restart the whole computer. Which, it won't restart the regular way. I have to take out the battery of my laptop and then restart it that way.

I took it to the Malware forums, where mpascal kindly looked through all sorts of stuff before figuring that it wasn't any Malware problem. That thread is here: http://www.geekstogo...es-t267740.html

If someone would be so kind as to help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. It gets pretty annoying trying to load up sites and then having to completely restart.

This sounds to me like a software freeze, it would be interesting you uninstall and reinstall Firefox.

Another process that you can try to remedy your problem is go to Start menu> All Programs> Accessories> click Command Prompt, open the following screen prompt type CHKDSK /R /F then the system will ask you to restart the system operating to perform the scan.

I've already uninstalled and re-installed Firefox and it still did this crazy thing. I attempted to do that little.. letter thing you told me in the Command Prompt and it said: "Access Denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode"

Run the command prompt as administrator for this go to, Start> All Programs> Accessories> then right-click on the Command Prompt and click Run as administrator, then type the command I provided earlier.

I did that last night, but it didn't give me any sort of log or anything. And, this morning, my browser still did its crazy thing.
